Gmail 5.0 added support for Exchange accounts, but it requires an additional APK (Exchange Services) which you can't get from the Play store unless you already have it. As one of the other answers indicates it seems to just be with Nexus devices at the moment (maybe some newer Lollipop ROMs do for other devices, not sure).
However, you can sideload it! I ...
I highly recommend MailWise. It has an Exchange override that allows you to turn off the server's influence over your device. Use it at your own risk (your employer may get whiny about it) but I can say it does work very well.
In order to use the Exchange Security Bypass, you'll need to go to MailWise's FAQ and follow the instructions. You basically just ...
I know of three alternative mail/calendar/contacts apps that can get you around the Exchange security policies assuming that you cannot have the policies turned off and you do not have IMAP/SMTP access:
Microsoft Outlook for iOS/Android (free) - I personally use this for all of my email accounts now and love it. It has cloud storage support (Dropbox, Google ...
I think I have encountered a similar issue before. Not sure how I fixed it, but
see if you have a Device Administrator for Exchange. In the Samsung Galaxy S4, it's in Settings > More > Security > Device Administrators. Uncheck / Remove it there, do a restart, and see if that helps.
or: Go to your application manager, and swipe to the ALL section. ...
No. You can only do what you describe on Samsung devices with their "KNOX" feature. This uses special security hardware to provide separate, isolated environments on your phone, so there's no way that information can leak from the "business" environment to the "personal" environment. It's present on their high-end phones since the Galaxy S3, and you can ...
It turned out to be a sync error for some contacts with malformed birthday field created on Android which causes exchange to silently fail.
You can debug it, by getting the Exchange server-side logs, by going to your Exchange Webmail (Outlook Web Access, OWA):
Login in to webmail.yourdomain.com
go to: Options -> All options -> Phone
mark your current ...
Not sure if you've made any headway on this. I was searching for answers for this today and got it figured out. I've got a Galaxy S4, running 4.2.2 I had to open the native email app.
Menu > Settings > Exchange Account with sub folders > More Settings > Folder Sync Settings. From there I think it should be self explanatory.
Not sure what ...
With Android 6, this is still an issue. You can remove the contacts by clearing the data from your "Contacts Storage" system app, but this will unfortunately also remove any locally stored contacts. If you use another account for your contacts sync that runs after deleting the contacts data, this might be a solution for you. I've written a blog post with ...
First try clearing the app data of the stock email app in settings->apps, if that doesn't work:
If you go to settings->apps again and click on the stock email app (not gmail) then click disable, that should do the trick.
If you still have a non-gmail email you could try lowering the sync frequency from push to every 30 mins.
I was able to get around this by putting in an invalid email address on the first step (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) then clicking the button to set up the account manually. I wanted to set up an Exchange account and was able to enter my proper corporate credentials in the following steps. This seems to have worked.
On the new Samsung Galaxy S7 - You must delete the account receiving the text messages and then reinstall it. During new account set up is the only time you will see the option of whether to sync SMS. It does not appear anywhere else once you leave the initial set up screen. Once the account is installed, you will see options for syncing email, contacts, ...
You might want to try TouchDown (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nitrodesk.honey.nitroid&hl=en) It is not a free app, but it does work perfectly with my work email and calendar (ActiveSync) without enforcing those extremely restrictive security settings.
I wouldn't bet a non-root procedure exists to bypass Android server-enforced security policies. Even for rooted phones the procedure involves patching or directly replacing the existing email client (Email.apk), which isn't anything one could do without root privileges.
Anyway, extreme care must be taken as bypassing security checks you may not just be ...
Step 1- Be sure sync is on for your other contacts (Google, for example) and that it has been synced so you don't delete contacts you've added to your phone as well!
Step 2- De-active contact sync for your Exchange account:
Settings > Accounts > Exchange > [Your Account] > Contacts to Off
Step 3- Clear the previously synced contacts by clearing the ...
K-9 Mail allows to choose the "from" mail address when composing a message (or replying to a received message). Click the "from" address field and a pop-up menu will appear which allows you to choose the appropriate account.
K-9 supports pop/imap/exchange(via webdav) accounts.

Here's what I've found:
"Support for standard Internet email protocols: IMAP, POP3, SMTP; Exchange: EWS" (reference)
"Support for … Exchange (ActiveSync, EWS, 365)"
"Supporting … all Exchange protocols including Exchange Web Services (EWS)"
MailCal for Exchange

The Knox container will be wiped.
Knox is a sandboxed instance of Android with its own separate security policy. Exchange's device administrator has no access to the contents of your phone outside of Knox and cannot wipe your personal data.
You need to root your phone to permanently uninstall it.
After you have rooted your device, you can use a application "Titanium Backup" to uninstall those useless application that come along with the phone.
Advice: make a copy of backup first. In case you find that you need the application after you uninstall it.

To stop this from happening you simply need to disable the Sync SMS feature on your Android phone which is enabled by default.
To disable the Sync SMS feature:
Open the Email Account Options settings
Disable the Sync SMS feature
The Exchange option is only available for users with the Exchange Services package installed. Unfortunately, this package doesn't come installed on all Android phones (as far as I know, only the Nexus devices come with it preinstalled) and isn't available on the Play Store. However, I did find a link where the apk file can be downloaded from. After ...
I ended up deleting the account and re-adding it. Space used by Email went from 2.7Gb to 16Mb.
On my Moto X, running Android 4.4.4, Delete the account from System settings (i.e., not in the Email app) -- under Settings, in the "Accounts" section, find the account with the Email app's icon and name that matches the name in the app. Tap the account name, ...
You can try these other two Xposed modules:
Security Bypass for Company Portal
This module can bypass the Intune Company Portal.
Exchange Bypass For Lollipop
This app can bypass the official Gmail client and Outlook app.
Both of these modules are based on the Xposed framework and must be installed on a rooted device.
solved while investigating to write a better question.
Apparently when the company migrated from some exchange version to another, something was set on the folders attributes that made android email application ignore it. Renaming the folder did not solve. Also comparing the attributes that are visible to the user between a folder that sync and one that ...
The contacts themselves are synced to your phone's internal memory, so they do take up space. The contacts are then updated every time the phone syncs with the server.
If they were only in the cloud you wouldn't be able to access them if you happen to lose the network connection, and contact lookup would be noticeably slower. Also, some mobile network ...
Had same problem. Download manager seems to be the issue if you have that installed. But just click on one of the notifications, you will see App Info. Click on that and then unclick show notifications.
It should go away.
Ok so you are wondering if you can change the download folder by changing some sort of config file. This sort of behavior has been sort of deprecated in Android. As an Android Developer, we are supposed to make all of our cache files private so that they cannot be accessed by another person or, more importantly, another program. Letting other programs root ...
